Other Games of Interest

  • Virginia 57, Virginia Tech 54: “Virginia Tech rallied from a horrendous first-half effort in which they trailed ACC rival Virginia by 16 points, to pull within two points late in the second half, but it was too little too late as the Hokies lost their third straight to fall to 4-4 overall and 0-1 in ACC play.” (Tech Hoops)
  • Temple 64, Maryland 61: “I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough of moral victories, if the close loss to Temple in the Verizon Center even qualifies as such. Maryland played a well-regarded Temple team and played them close, falling by only three points in a tense 64-61 Temple victory. And the Terrapins probably saw plenty of positives in their performance, like solid play from their freshman guards and the continued dominance of Jordan Williams. But for the third time this year, Maryland fiddled away a marquee victory on simple mistakes – namely, free throws and rebounding. It happened against Pitt, it happened against Illinois, and it happened again against Temple, where Maryland was outrebounded by ten, shot 58% from the stripe, and missed four free throws in the final four minutes. And yes, the margin of defeat was three.” (Testudo Times)


  • Five Key Plays: Harvard: Breaking down five significant plays during Michigan’s win over Harvard. (UM Hoops)
  • Kentucky Basketball: Picking Through The Wreckage Of The UNC Game: “This morning, I got up with a hangover.  Not a hangover from an excess of adult beverages, mind you, but a hangover from a game that the Kentucky Wildcats should have won.” (A Sea of Blue)
  • Izod Doubleheader, Penn/Army and Butler/Duke: “The Izod Center brought a college basketball doubleheader back into the facility on Saturday. A nice mid-major match-up between Penn and Army was followed by the feature game, a rematch of last year’s NCAA title game, Duke-Butler.” (Villanova by the Numbers)
